Karlsruhe Institute of Technology
The Initiative is coordinated by researchers at the Institute for Theory of Condensed Matter at KIT. The KIT team consists of theorists who have made major contributions to problems in the areas of quantum transport, mesoscopic physics, and hydrodynamics of electronic materials with particular focus on graphene and related systems.
The University of Manchester
The Manchester team consists of experimental and theoretical groups. The experimental group (Andre Geim, Irina Grigorieva) is famous for the Nobel-Prize winning discovery of graphene and possesses an outstanding expertise in investigation of its transport and magnetic properties. Recent activity of the group had a particular focus on van der Waals heterostructures. The theory group (Alessandro Principi) has a superb research record in modelling optical, transport and magnetic properties of graphene.
